Glocal Logo

The Milwaukee ELCA Glocal Mission Gathering bring together congregational teams and leaders for worship, workshops, and sharing around global and local mission.

God’s work in mission always propels us to encounter the neighbor, particularly in the stranger. ELCA Glocal Mission Gatherings equip us for God’s work in today’s global and local realities as well as their “glocal” intersections.

What is mission? Who is the neighbor? Let’s consider these questions together as they relate to our migrating and immigrating world. Come, join us for mission conversations around the realities of the world we live in today.


In depth workshops build team members’ capacity for work and service within one specific area of mission. Skill-building workshops at your event will include: (click the title of the workshop to see it’s description & presenter(s))

  • Growing a Missional Congregation

Each congregational team member attends only 1 skill-building workshop.  Maximize your learning by bringing 1 team member for each workshop.
